DAY 109 (23 JULY) – Swallow (Hirundo rustica) (Vejer, Spain)
Two of these three swallows have spotted a breakfast snack flying above them. They have no idea Boris Johnson has just been elected PM, and I wish I didn’t know either and could be one of them looking over the valley. I saw them on an early morning walk after delivering some documents to the town hall as it opened. The sun was already very hot.
I love how birds gather in early morning as part of their routine. These swallows are abundant summer visitors to urban areas in Andalucia. I did worry, though, that I couldn’t see their famous red throats… But I’m sure they aren’t swifts.
